The former “Friends” guest star (who played Ross’ girlfriend Mona on the show’s eighth season) and a male companion were leaving the T-Mobile G1 launch party at Hollywood’s Siren Studios, when they were reportedly accosted. The two were reportedly held at gunpoint and Somerville was forced to hand over her purse, while her friend was shot in the back.
According to TMZ, Somerville believed her friend was shot with a BB gun, but a valet said he was shot with a .22.
A spokesperson for the LAPD confirmed to Access Hollywood that a white male was shot after an attempted robbery by two black male suspects shortly after 2 AM, at 6002 W. Sunset Blvd. – the location of the party’s valet parking, just a half-block East of the event. The victim was transported to an area hospital, while the suspects fled the scene.
No other crimes were reported in the immediate area, authorities confirmed.
